many electron atoms

Postby Sarah Blake-2I » Sun Oct 27, 2019 2:58 pm

I saw on the outline for the quantum world unit we need to know the factors affecting the energy of an electron in a many-electron atom. Can someone explain those factors to me? Is it related to trends at all or is it a separate concept?

It includes some of the trends. For example, atomic radius and electron shielding affect the ionization energy of an atom since inner electrons block outer electrons that are far away from the nucleus.

Does this also include electron affinity and IE?
